The Practice of Wellness in Christ

A Retreat For Women

What is True Wellness? How Do I Practice True Wellness?

The Practice of Wellness in Christ is an interactive 3-day retreat for women that will help you practice wellness principles from a biblical perspective.

Mary Wood and Heather NeRoy, retreat facilitators, will lead you through practices that embrace the reality of our bodies while focusing our hearts and minds on the love of God and his restorative power.  This retreat will explore in-depth the art of integration and going deeper into our issues of shame and practicing the practices that truly restore our souls and bodies.  It is not necessary to have come to the first retreat (Being Well In Christ), although helpful.  This retreat is designed to help you go deeper into true wellness and wholeness in Christ. 

This retreat is designed for those who are tired and weary or simply longing for more integration in their lives. It is also for anyone who wants to get away and restore through extended time to focus on God and what really matters while embracing the body as a spiritual practice. 

Matthew 11:28  (The Message)  Are you tired?  Worn out on religion?  Come to me.  Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.  I’ll show you how to take a real rest.  Walk with me and work with me-watch how I do it.  Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.

 Retreat to beautiful Glen Eyrie to rest and restore your mind, body, and soul.  Enjoy the beauty of God’s creation while you focus your mind on Christ, and enjoy the practices that renew your body and spirit.  

If you’d like to come earlier or stay after your retreat dates, lodging is available at a Programs discounted rate. Please call our reservations line at 719-265-7050 for details.

Retreat Leaders

Mary Wood

The Practice of Wellness in Christ is led by Mary Wood. Mary is an AAAI/IMSA and ACE certified personal trainer, Pilates and group fitness instructor and has been a professional in the wellness and physical therapy world for over 30 years. She has served with The Navigators for over 25 years equipping people to fully live for God through scripture engagement, encouragement, and living out the words of Jesus.

Heather NeRoy

Mary will be joined by her friend Heather NeRoy, who will lead optional yoga sessions. Heather considers herself a worship leader first and a yoga teacher second. In her Jesus + Yoga classes, she creates space for students to find what feels like worship in their unique bodies. Her greatest joy is to see sisters-in-Christ of all shapes, sizes, and fitness abilities move and breathe together in a spirit of worship. She has been teaching weekly Christian yoga classes at local churches for over 6 years and when she isn’t teaching yoga she can be found soaking up the Colorado sun on hikes or by the pool with her husband, two daughters, and Goldendoodle.


Retreat attire is casual and be prepared to do lots of walking. Our weather can be unpredictable, so pack layers. Bring workout gear if you plan to participate in the yoga session. And don’t forget to bring your Bible!
